I just had to get my hands on this rare Indian sandalwood. It is indeed sweet, creamy, and woody. I can imagine that it will only get better with age. Christine did it again with another winner. I recommend you try it out to experience to smell what real sandalwood smells like.

This is one of the weakest Sandalwood oils I have experienced but at this price that’s fair. The aroma does not last more than a couple of minutes outside of the bottle. I can only assume very low santalols and GC/MS report could not be produced by seller.

A Certificate of Analysis (with Santalol content) will be available once the manufacturer resumes work in India.
A tremendous buy. Generally speaking sandalwood today is from young trees while vintage was from very mature trees. I can’t speak to the age of these trees, but all the very many other sandalwoods I’ve bought at up to and including double the price have had to my nose substantial off notes that bothered me. This has no such thing: very smooth, beautiful. Very recommended. You cannot do better for twice the money.
Absolutely Magnificent. Everybody should have some of this. Heart and spice — as it should be.
I was revisiting this oil to order and sampling it immediately the first impression that came to my mind is that it shared the odor of some mid 1960’s imported pure sandalwood incense I have. I would buy a great amount of this oil is if I could afford it. With time it will age I’m sure beautifully. Right off the bat it echoed with authenticity and left what most other varieties though more grown or harvested friendly as possible such as Hawaiian,New Caledonia, Vanuatu and such they are smoky, oily or slightly vegetative- causing off notes.
Yes this one is kind of thin but I think with age it will develop at bit and it does have the true sandalwood much desired note.
I think some have gotten used to spiculatums projection and loud voice in modern times. Indian sandalwood, to me, has always had a soft, deep and intimate scent profile, whispering “come closer”. I like this oil because of this. I expect it to age magnifiscently. At this price, at this time…no brainer!!
I got a sample of this and instantly switched from a different supplier. At this price it’s a no brainer!
